Donald Trump's "face-lift" jab at "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski was denounced by all sides. But it was far from the first time he has attacked female critics by insulting their looks, as these 13 women prove.
Jolie has been named "most beautiful woman in the world" by Vogue, Vanity Fair, and others. But in 2007, Trump deemed the liberal actress and humanitarian unattractive: "I do understand beauty, and she's not."
Not even a champion Olympic figure skater is exempt from Trump's insults. In November 1992, Trump told New York Magazine that Witt "could only be described as attractive if you like a woman with a bad complexion who is built like a linebacker."

In an attempt to discredit rival Carly Fiorina during the Republican primaries, Trump said in a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone, "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?"

In 2012, he took to Twitter to insult the liberal co-creator of the Huffington Post: "[email protected] is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man- he made a good decision."
Trump said on a 2006 episode of "Entertainment Tonight": "Rosie O'Donnell is disgusting, both inside and out. If you take a look at her, she's a slob...If I were running The View, I'd fire Rosie. I'd look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers and say, 'Rosie, you're fired."
The former Miss Universe said Trump called her "Miss Piggy" and made other disparaging remarks about her body.
According to The Telegraph, Trump fired back at Cher in 2012 after the singer criticized then-Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. "[email protected] don’t wear a “rug”—it’s mine. And I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work," he tweeted.
Trump told the New York Times in 2015 that Heidi Klum "sadly" was "no longer a 10." Klum clapped back at Trump's insult with this mocking tweet.

Trump took on rival Ted Cruz by insulting Cruz's wife. Trump compared a less-than-flattering photo of Heidi with a glamor shot of Melania Trump and included the caption, "No need to 'spill the beans.' The images are worth a thousand words."
